As the NBA trade deadline approaches following the All-Star break, it is becoming increasingly more likely that the Orlando Magic will look for a trade partner so that they can get valuable assets in return for superstar Dwight Howard.
The Magic cannot afford to follow in the steps of the Cleveland Cavaliers and allow their superstar to walk away for nothing.
Potential trade partners must be wary of Howard's upcoming decision to become a free agent at the end of the season, and must have other star players who will team with Howard and be able to keep him around for the long term.
The following three teams have the best chance at trading for Howard, and also have star players that can convince Howard to sign a long-term deal.
These may not be the specific terms of the the deals that each team ends up putting together, but each is a possible scenario to land Howard.
